    since were on the topics of short throw shifters...

    my car was purchased from dealer inventory with the 5MT SPT STS installed, so please keep your comments about it being a useless purchase, or infirior to other aftermarket STSs, etc.. to yourself since its already installed and will provide no real help to the conversation. that being said, this may be a silly question, BUT from what i understand, the SPT STS shortens the linkage, and not so much the lever. however the kartboy and cobb STS do nothing for the linkage, just a shorter lever... could i now just change out the lever to say, a kartboy, and retain the SPTs shorter linkage?

    and on a side note, is it common for the OEM shifter and linkage to be stuffed in a box in the trunk upon delivery?

    Yes, you could use a Kartboy with the SPT linkage.

    IDK about them giving you the oem parts.

    So in theory, the spt linkage + an aftermarket lever would make for the shortest throws?

    I had the oem shifter, fog light blanks, blinker stalk and arm rest in a box in the trunk. Never heard of dealers giving the oem parts.. Was just curious if anyone else got them. I kinda wish they kept everything BC now for some stupid reason i feel a need to hang on to them... Like one day I'll decide i don't like fog lights anymore.
